To get answer: To get your answer you would have to discuss this with the surgeon that would do the surgery. He may have you talk with a dermatologist also but that would really answer your questions fully.

EDS has surgery risk: Ehlers danlos syndrome (eds) is a connective tissue disorder that has many subtypes. In type 3 eds, joint overextensibility can cause serious orthopedic issues.In eds of any type, anesthetic & surgical complications, while rare, are more common than in someone without eds, including blood vessel rupture, hemorrhage, and airway and neck damage.Type of lumbar fusion doesn't seem to affect these issues.
